The Circle 2 EP is an essential piece of Detroit minimalism. Detroit veteran Len Bartush (Mutate) returns to advance the series that began with the now classic Circle 1.The EP starts off with Mutates Circle 2 (Machined) original. A full round kick and jack style upbeats are all that are necessary to support the deep, modulated synth linesthat travel through lush plates of reverb, creating an atmosphere perfect for any techno desire from dance floor, to living room, to headphones.Alberto Pascual hits a homerun with a remix that will move any club, festival, or warehouse party. Big room percussion, moving sub bass, and funky rim shots compliment the dark synths from the original.Project 313s remix delivers with an interpretation that celebrates the true spirit of the original. Moving synth lines are stripped down and replaced with driving rhythms and pulsating bass, making this a superb techno offering.The Plankton remix turns up the tension with warehouse style percussion and intertwining rhythms, complimented by science-fictionesque stabs and pounding bass.The digital exclusive track Quantum Foam removes the percussive techno elements and creates an ambient end to this EP. This mix features swirling, lush synth pads complemented by sparse congas that drift off in long, dubby echoes.tle something for everyone.
